One Mile, No Sweat

One mile no sweat,
Two miles better yet,
Three miles oh no,
Four miles gotta go,
Five miles, gotta run
Six miles, to the sun
Seven miles feeling good like I should.

In my legs,
In my head,
In my chest,
Feeling good,
Super troop.

C-130

C-130 rolling down the strip,
Airborne daddy's gonna take a little trip.
Mission uncertain, destination unknown,
Don't even know if we're ever coming home.

Stand-up, Hook-up, shuffle to the door,
Jump right out and count to four.
Slip to the left and slip to the right
Slip on down to a firefight.
Hit the drop zone with my feet apart
Legs in my stomach and feet in my heart.

And if my main don't open wide,
I've got a reserve by my side.
And if that one should fail me too,
Look out below, I'm coming through.

And if I die in the old drop zone,
Box me up and ship me home.
And if I die in the Korean mud
Bury me with a case of Bud

Bury speakers all around my head
So I can rock with the Grateful Dead
Bury speakers all around my toes
So I can rock with Axel Rose

Pin my medals upon my chest,
And bury me in the leaning rest.

Up in the morning

Up in the morning at the break of day
Work so hard we never play  
Run through the jungle where the sun don't shine
And all I do is the double time

Up in the morning and out of the rack
Grab my clothes and put them on my back
Run thru the swamp and up in a tree
First sergeant chasing after me

I like whiskey  and I like wine  
But all I do is double time

Up in the morning before the break of day
I dont like it no way
Eat my breakfast too darn soon
Hungry as hell by noon

Went to the mess sergeant on my knees
I said mess sergeant, mess sergeant, feed me please
Mess sergeant said with a big old grin
If you want to be airborne, you got to be thin.

When I get to Heaven

When I get to heaven,
Saint Peter's gonna say,
How'd you earn your living boy?
How'd you earn your pay?

I reply with a whole lot of anger,
Earned my living as an Airborne Ranger.
Livin' a life of Guts and Danger,

Blood, Sweat, Guts, and Danger.
That's the way, of an
Airborne Ranger

When I get to hell,
Satan's gonna say,
How'd you earn your living punk?
How'd you earn your pay?

And I replied with a boot to his face,
Earned my livin' laying souls to waste!

My Granny

When my granny was 91,
She did PT just for fun.

When my granny was 92,
She did PT better than you.

When my granny was 93,
She did pushups just like me.

When my granny was 94,
She did PT more and more.

When my granny was 95,
She did PT to stay alive.

When my Granny turned 96,
She did situps just for kicks.

And when my granny turned 97,
She double-timed straight up to heaven.

She met St. Peter at the pearly gate,
Said, Gee, St. Peter I hope Im not late.

St. Peter said with a big wide grin, 
Drop down Granny and knock out ten.

Saw an old Lady

Saw an old lady walking down the street  
Had a ruck on her back and jungle boots on her feet
I said "Hey old lady where you going to?"
She said "U.S. Army Ranger School"
I said "Hey old lady, now ain't you been told?
Ranger School's for the young and the bold!"
She said "Hey now son  don't be a fool  
I'm an instructor at the Ranger school"

Saw an old lady walking down the street  
Had a chute on her back, and jump boots on her feet
I said "Hey old lady where you going to?"
She said "U.S. Army Airborne School"
I said "Hey old lady, you're too darn old
You'd better leave the jumpin' to the young and the bold"  
She said "Hey now sonny can't you see?
I've got master jump wings and my CIB"

Saw an old lady walking down the street
She had a tank on her back and fins on her feet
I said "Hey old lady, where you going to?"
She said "U.S. Army Scuba School"
I said "Hey old lady, now ain't you been told?
Scuba School's for the young and the bold"
She said "Hey now sonny can't you see?  
I taught recon, UDT"

Two Old Ladies

Two old ladies lying in bed,
One rolled over to the other and said,
"I wanna be an Airborne Ranger",
Live a life of guts and danger,
Blood, guts, lies and danger,
That's the life of an Airborne Ranger.

Up on a mountain top

Up on a mountaintop, beating my drum
I beat so hard till the MP's come
I said MP, MP, don't arrest me
Arrest that leg behind that tree
He stole the whiskey, he stole the wine
And all I ever do is the double-time

Boo

Had an old dog whose name was Boo  
Boo wants to go to Scuba School
Bought him a tank and four little fins
And took him down where he got the bends

Same old dog whose name was Boo
Boo wants to go to Ranger School
And so I took away his chow  
I motivated his bow-wow

Still got the dog whose name was Boo
Boo wants to go to Airborne School
Got him a chute, strapped it to his back
Now Boo stands tall, and he looks strac

That Airborne dog whose name was Boo  
Got his orders for Jungle School
Took him down to Panama
And that's the last of Boo I ever saw .

Coonskin

Coon skin and alligator hide  
Make a pair of jump boots just the right size
Shine 'em up, lace 'em up, put 'em on your feet
A good pair of jump boots can't be beat

Birdie, birdie in the sky
Dropped some whitewash in my eye
Ain't no sissy, I won't cry
I'm just glad that cows don't fly

Superman

Me and Superman got in a fight
I hit him in the head with some Kryptonite
I hit him so hard I busted his brain
And now I'm dating Lois Lane

Well, me and Batman, we had one too
I hit him in the head with my left shoe
Right in the temple with my heel
And now I'm driving the Batmobile

They say that in the Army

They say that in the Army the chow is mighty fine
Chicken jumped off the table and started marching time.

O how I want to go,
But they wont let me go,
Hooooome, ooooome, ooooome, HEY!

They say that in the Army the coffee is mighty fine
It looks like muddy water and tastes like turpentine.

They say that in the Army the money is mighty fine
They give you a hundred dollars and take back ninety-nine.

Choppers Coming

I hear the choppers coming,
Their flying overhead,
They've come to take the wounded,
They've come to take the dead.

AIRBORNE (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)
RANGER (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)

My Buddy's in a foxhole,
A bullet in his head,
The Army say's he's living,
But I know that he's dead.

AIRBORNE (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)
RANGER (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)

I ran to tell the CO,
About my Buddy's head,
But when I got there,
The CO was already dead..

AIRBORNE (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)
RANGER (Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot to kill)

And now the battle's over,
The smoke is all around,
We wanted to go home,
But we're six feet under ground.

They took away my faded jeans,
Now I'm wearing Army Greens.

Now I hump it on my back.

Sat me in the Barber's chair,
Spun me around, I had no hair.

Around her hair

Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon,
She wore it in the spring time in the merry month of May,
And if you asked her why the hell she wore it,
She wore it for the soldier who was far, far away.

FAR AWAY!
FAR AWAY!

She wore it for the soldier who was far, far away.

Around the block she pushed a baby carriage...

Behind the door her daddy kept a shotgun...

In the church the preacher kept a license...

Pebbles and Bam Bam

Pebbles and Bam Bam on a Friday night,
Trying to get to heaven on a paper kite,
Lightning struck (Boom) and down they fell (Ahhh),
Instead of getting to heaven, they went strait to hell.

Dino the dog (Ruff Ruff) was on the bone (Chomp Chomp),
While Fred and Barney rocked the microphone,
There was nothing Fred or Barney could do,
Except sing "Yaaba, dabba, dabba, dabba, dabba doo."
